business is booming.

SAmsung has you covered. Exploding phones.

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

Current breakdown of the subline imprint confusion:



The following toys are branded "Transformers Cyberverse: Battle for Cybertron" on their packaging:
Tiny Turbo Changers Series 3
1-step Changer Bumblebee (rebranded re-release) Hasbro stock photo only
1-step Changer Wheeljack (rebranded re-release) Hasbro stock photo only
1-Step Changer Autobot Whirl
Scout Class Grimlock (rebranded re-release)
Scout Class Ramjet
Scout Class Dead End
Warrior Class Soundwave (rebranded re-release)
Ultra Class Bumblebee
Ultra Class Hot Rod
Ultimate Class Optimus Prime
Ultimate Class Shockwave
Target exclusive "Cybertron Villains" Quintesson Invasion set
Target exclusive "Cybertron Villains" Sharkticons Attack set



The following toys are branded "Transformers Bumblebee: Cyberverse Adventures" on their packaging:
1-Step Changers Bludgeon
1-Step Changers Wheeljack (rebranded re-release) final toy release
1-Step Changers Bumblebee (rebranded re-release) final toy release
Scout Class Optimus Prime (rebranded re-release)
Warrior Class Bumblebee (Cybertronian Mode)
Warrior Class Stealth Force Hot Rod
Warrior Class Megatron (Cybertronian Mode)
Deluxe Class Optimus Prime
Deluxe Class Bumblebee
Deluxe Class Megatron
Deluxe Class Shockwave


So with the stock photos for Wheeljack and Bumblebee contradicting the toys that were actually released, I feel it's safe to say that "Battle for Cybertron" was the intended name of the subline imprint for 2020 (presumably tying in with the Quintesson and Sharkticon sets), but for some reason, Hasbro's marketing department had made the last-minute decision to rename the subline imprint into "Bumblebee: Cyberverse Adventures" instead, but not until after a considerable amount of packaging had already been printed.

I picked up Sharkticons Attack yesterday. The Sharkticons themselves are pretty nifty, being basically Sharkticon botbots, though their being unarmed is a little disappointing (and now, remedied).. My plans to customize the Hot Rod into a Cyberverse Jackpot are at least temporarily thwarted by the fact that his head is attached with a pin of all things.

Picked up the Quint set. Of course the sharkticons were sold out. Interesting face sculpts. It's a pretty nice figure. Haven't been watching the show so I don't know if it shows up, but I'm always glad to have some more quintesons in my collection.

I've been paying zero attention to Cyberverse, so I was delighted to discover the Sharkticon set at Target this weekend. What a fun little set! I like that one of the Sharkies has a different "pack leader" paint job, and Hot Rod's twisty auto-transformation gimmick works well and feels solid. 

 

Is the "Gravity Cannon Wheeljack" supposed to be a reverse-homage to Energon Downshift? The lighter colors and pink windshield make it look more like Downshift than the typical Wheeljack color scheme.

Wheeljack's Cyberverse/"evergreen" design uses a pink/red windshield, itself a callback to G1 Wheeljack's box art using that color for its.

Those paint jobs denote which of the three tribes those Sharkticons belong to. The green ones are members of the Snouts, while the orange one is a member of the Tails. The third tribe is the Fins, who have purple markings.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Under unknown circumstances, the Sharkticon homeworld was destroyed. The survivors of the cataclysm regressed into three small groups: The Fins, The Tails, and The Snouts.

Do we know exactly what the scene is on the Sharkticon's package background?  It looks like a giant spark surrounded by orbs.  My guess would be a Sharkticon birthing chamber.  The orbs contain protoforms and the giant spark...is their mom?  Maybe a Vector Sigma-like life-giving thing.

 

The Quint package background looks like a mass of cables that the Quint just broke free from.

Given the Prowl and Shockwave helmets, I think those cables are more like the Quintesson pulling the strings on Prowl and Shockwave.

I found Ultra-class Hot Rod at the Target near work this evening. Even though it was on the shelf, apparently it wasn't in the computer system yet. I was using the self checkout, but it choked on Hot Rod and signaled a worker.

The worker didn't have any better luck with her tool, so she called in her manager. Maybe I just lucked out and caught him when he was trying to get out. Whatever the reason, rather than try to find out the actual price (which I already had up on my phone), he just had the worker ring it up as a clearanced $5 item.

Mad my evening! :)
